For Jurors

“I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution." -Thomas Jefferson

Jury service is an important way for U.S. Citizens to participate in the judicial process.  The District of Kansas randomly selects citizens’ names from lists of registered voters who live in Kansas.  The people randomly selected complete a questionnaire to help determine if they are qualified to serve on a jury. Those qualified are randomly chosen to be summoned to appear for jury duty. This selection process helps to make sure that jurors represent a cross section of the community, without regard to race, gender, national origin, age, or political affiliation.

If you have any questions about the jury process, please contact one of our jury coordinators.  We believe that if you are called to jury service and you have the opportunity to serve, you will find this experience to be very interesting and enlightening.
