How was I selected?
Jurors are randomly selected from current lists of persons age 18 and older, living in Shawnee County, Kansas, and are registered voters, have a Kansas drivers license, or a State ID card. Some people are chosen several times during their lifetime; others are never chosen. So long as you are a registered voter or have a Kansas drivers license, or State of Kansas issued ID, you have the same chance of being chosen as anyone else who meets the criteria.
