How are grand jurors selected?
Grand Jury selection process:
  • A grand jury candidate pool is developed from voter registration and Department of Motor Vehicle records, as well as interested individuals nominated by the Superior Court Judges
  • 1000 grand jury questionnaires are mailed to randomly selected individuals in the grand jury candidate pool
  • The jury coordinator collates returned grand jury questionnaires - questionnaires with an expressed desire to serve are passed along to the advising judge
  • The advising judge reviews the questionnaires and comprises a list of applicants
  • By a personal interview of those applicants, the Superior Court ascertains their qualifications to serve and forms a grand juror pool sufficient in number for the incoming Grand Jury
  • A random drawing from the grand jury pool is held to select the nineteen members and alternates of the next Grand Jury
