Why you received the Form. The Juror Qualification Form is sent to all prospective jurors and is used to help determine whether a person is qualified to be a juror. Jury Offices use the statewide voter registration list and the Motor Vehicle Administration lists of people with driver's licenses or identification cards (and sometimes other lists) to get the names of prospective jurors. These lists are used to make sure that each jury is selected at random from a cross section of the adult Maryland citizens who reside in the county/Baltimore City.
Thank you for visiting the Massachusetts Juror Service Website. Jury duty is a privilege and a responsibility shared by all eligible citizens in our participatory democracy. There are no exemptions from jury duty: doctors, police officers, students, and even judges are eligible to serve as jurors.
The Jury Commissioner, Pamela J. Wood, and her office create the master juror list for each judicial district, issue summonses, and help jurors respond to summonses. The OJC also works to educate jurors and the public about the importance and value of jury service.
At least every two years, a three-person Jury Commission for each county oversees the compiling of a master jury list of licensed drivers and / or registered voters. Names are drawn at random from this list. A jury summons is printed and issued to jurors by U.S. mail.
Any person summoned as a juror who is a full-time student at an out of state educational institution and who wishes to be excused or who is 72 years or older and who wishes to be excused, deferred, or exempted, may make the request without appearing in person by filing a signed statement of the ground of the request at any time five business days before the date upon which the person is summoned to appear.
Any person summoned as a juror who has a disability that could interfere with the person's ability to serve as a juror and who wishes to be excused, deferred, or exempted may make the request without appearing in person by filing a signed statement of the ground of the request, including a brief explanation of the disability that interferes with the person's ability to serve as a juror, at any time five business days before the date upon which the person is summoned to appear. Upon request of the court, medical documentation of any disability may be submitted. Any privileged medical information or protected health information described in this section shall be confidential.
Dress comfortably, but not too casually. Dress for court in a manner that maintains the dignity of the court. For example, many judges do not allow anyone to come to court wearing halter or tank tops, cut-off jeans, or shirts with offensive wording and / or images. You will be acting as part of the court while serving as a juror, so dress appropriately. Wear layered clothing since courtroom temperatures may vary considerably.
It is against the law for an employer to fire or demote an employee because he or she served as a juror or grand juror. However, the law does not require that the employee be paid in full while serving. Notify your employer as soon as you receive a jury summons and check with your employer regarding the payment policy for jury service. Read more in the Employers' Guide to Jury Service.
In smaller counties, your jury summons may tell you whether you are summoned for a criminal or civil session of court. In larger counties, several court sessions are held at the same time, so you may hear either criminal or civil matters. If you are seated for a trial, you must serve until the trial ends, which could be two days to several weeks. However, most jurors only serve for one or two days.
When you report to the courthouse, you may be required to watch a juror orientation video. Court staff will give you additional information. All jurors will take an oath. Once a trial begins and you are sworn in, you will be given a juror badge to wear until you are released by the judge. The judge will instruct you on your duties as a juror.
If Step 2 on your summons instructs you to call for instructions, you are a call-in juror.

Per California Code of Civil Procedure Sec. 215(d)(2), jurors may request to receive reimbursement of up to $12.00 (daily maximum) for the cost of public transit incurred. Public transit includes buses, subways, light rail, commuter rails, trolleys, and ferries. Rideshare services such as Uber, Lyft and taxis are not eligible. Jurors who choose this option will no longer be eligible to receive payment for mileage and, if applicable, validation to cover parking fees. To request reimbursement, please speak with a Jury Clerk on your first day of jury service.
The Jury Act also allows courts to excuse a juror from service at the time he or she is summoned on the grounds of "undue hardship or extreme inconvenience." The juror should write a letter to the clerk of court requesting an excuse with an explanation of hardship.
