How Was I Selected For Jury Service?
Your name was randomly selected from county voter registration lists and licensed motor vehicle operator lists for the State of New York. Names are entered into a pool and you may be randomly summoned either as a grand or petit juror. You will be mailed a summons form with a date to report and a qualification questionnaire to complete and return within ten (10) days to the Court.
Jurors are summoned for a 90-day term of service. However, you will not be at the Court every day for this period. You may be required to appear only one to three times. If you are selected, you will serve for the duration of the trial and be excused for the remainder of the 90-day period. If you appear for jury service and are not selected, you will not have to return again until you are notified by mail with another notice to report for jury service.
