Jury service is a civic duty. A jury decides the facts of a case in accordance with principles of the law as explained by a judge.
Jurors listen to testimony, review evidence, and render decisions in civil and criminal trials. Most U.S. citizens who are 18 or older may serve on a federal jury. The Jury Selection and Service Act establishes the process for selecting jurors and provides requirements citizens must meet in order to qualify for serving on a federal jury.
Visit the website of the district court where you were selected to serve to complete an online Juror Qualification Questionnaire via the federal court's eJuror.
Courts randomly select eligible citizens from counties within the district for possible jury service.
