How was I chosen for jury service?

Every two years, a three-person Jury Commission for your county oversees the compiling of a Master Jury List of county residents who are either licensed drivers or registered voters, or both. Your name was drawn at random from that master list. Though your Jury Duty notice is mailed by the Sheriff's Office, your name is selected randomly by the Clerk of Court's office.
