2016-2017 Regular Session
At present, county juror source lists are compiled from a merger of lists including registered voters, licensed drivers, filers of State gross income tax returns and filers of homestead rebate or credit application forms. This bill would add a new list, consisting of persons volunteering to serve as grand or petit jurors for the county. Under the bill, every county clerk would be required to annually maintain a list of the names of county residents who opt to be listed as persons volunteering to serve as grand or petit jurors for the county for a period of one year from the date of registration. The list would be compiled from data submitted by any person seeking to volunteer as a prospective juror, in any form deemed appropriate by the county clerk, which may include paper or electronic submission. The data submitted would include the name and address of the prospective volunteer juror, the date the year-long commitment shall begin, and any restriction as to whether the person is volunteering for grand or petit juror service, and would need to be signed by the prospective volunteer juror. This list would be separate from any other list used for the preparation of the juror source list for the county, and would be submitted to the Assignment Judge of the county at the same time the county board of elections annually submits the list of registered voters of the county to the Assignment Judge.
