The primary duty and responsibility of the Jury Commissioners is to oversee and maintain the integrity of the process by which jurors are selected.
There are two elected part-time Jury Commissioners; they may not be members of the same political party. The Jury Management system utilizes a two-step process to qualify and summon jurors. First, from a “Master List”, generated by voter registration polls from the Bureau of Elections, individuals are randomly selected and then mailed juror questionnaires.
Second, eligible citizens are then placed in the “Pool of Qualified Jurors”. As the needs of the court require, qualified jurors are selected at random and mailed a Summons to Appear for a specific service date. The number of names drawn for each term of Court is set by Court Order from the President Judge.
