How did my name get selected for jury duty?
Your name was obtained from the list of registered voters in Miami County, which was provided by the Board of Elections. The drawing of prospective jurors is performed according to statutory guidelines, which assure a random selection of a fair cross section of the community. Being a registered voter is NOT a prerequisite to serving. Your voting record (how you voted or voting frequency) has nothing to do with your ability to be selected. It is only the source list that is used to obtain jurors' names.
