Declaration of Policy

It is the Court's policy that all litigants who are entitled to a trial by jury, shall have the right to petit jurors selected at random from a fair cross-section of the community in the division where the Court convenes.  All qualified citizens who reside in the District of Idaho and are not exempt or disqualified, shall have an obligation to serve as jurors when summoned for that purpose.

Obligation to Serve

It is the policy of this Court that all litigants in the Court, entitled to trial by jury, shall have the right to petit jurors selected at random from a fair cross section of the community in the division where the Court convenes.  All qualified citizens who reside in the District of Idaho and are not exempt or disqualified, shall have an obligation to serve as jurors when summoned for that purpose.

How Jurors are Summoned

Names of grand and petit jurors serving in this Court will be selected by randomized procedures from the merged lists of licensed drivers, holders of state identification cards, and registered voters. The names of registered voters will be obtained from the general election as maintained in the books, lists, or automated voter registration systems of each county, as being the correct number by the Secretary of State. The names of licensed drivers and state identification card holders will be obtained from the lists or automated systems from the Department of Motor Vehicles.  Such lists, as described above, represent a fair cross section of the community within the district.

 

When are Summonses Mailed Out?

A summons packet is mailed out approximately four weeks prior to the service date.  The packet contains a jury summons and a "How to" on how to fill out the questionnaires electronically using eJuror.  If you do not have a computer, please call 1-844-868-6769 to request that paper copies be sent to you.
