Citizens are often called upon to serve as jurors

Jurors perform a vital role in the American system of justice and jury service is considered to be a high duty of citizenship.

Jurors are selected to serve based on voter registration, driver’s license information and income tax filers. This information is maintained on a central computer database at the General Services Department in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Upon order of the court, names are selected by computer from this database. This computer is programmed so that names are selected at random; therefore, there is no discrimination that may be exercised.

No one is excluded from service because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, economic status or occupation.

The juror qualification/questionnaire that you are being asked to fill out is essential and saves time when the jury trial panels are selected.

If summoned to serve as a juror, we urge that you serve. Besides, you might enjoy it. Most jurors tell us they do.

Every SUMMONS TO JURY SERVICE must have a completed Questionnaire and Qualification submission, which you may submit online at: (If you do not have internet access, there are kiosks/computers available at the court you were summoned to).
