JURY SERVICE PSA
JURY SERVICE PSA
- How was I chosen? – Jurors are picked at random from lists of registered voters, people with driver’s licenses, or those with state issued ID cards.
- What are the exemptions? Depending on local laws and specific court policies, exemptions MAY include persons over age 70, and those having recently served on a jury (usually within 1-3 years depending on county policy). In the state of Washington, there are no automatic professional or government employee exemptions. If any of these apply to you, contact the court to verify they observe the exemption.
