How are jurors selected?

In Montgomery County persons are selected at random for jury service from the Registrar of Voters. If you have spelled your name differently or if the information at the Registrar of Voters is not up-to-date, you may receive additional summons. If you have received a summons for a deceased relative, please sign the summons and return it in the envelope provided. We will attempt to not send further summons; however, if the name of a deceased person remains on the source list, you may receive additional summons. The only way to ensure that this does not continue is to contact the Registrar of Voters and have the name removed from their list.

In some counties and in federal courts, the list of registered automobile drivers may be used. Jury trials are held in the United States district courts, the common pleas court of each county, municipal courts and county courts.
