  • How is someone selected for jury duty?

    Every two years, in the year following a federal election, the rolls of voters from each county in the Eastern District of New York are used together with a list from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles from the same counties to create a master list of potential jurors within the District. A random selection of names from that master list is drawn from as jurors are needed by the Court. If you received a questionnaire or summons then you appear on one of these lists.
