The names of individuals who will receive a questionnaire are selected at random, with surveys sent to individuals who have a Hawaiʻi state driver’s license or are registered to vote in Hawaiʻi.

Approximately 235,000 juror questionnaires will be mailed to 85,000 residents on Oʻahu, 70,000 on the Big Island and 25,000 on Kauaʻi.

The questionnaires are used to help select potential jurors who may be eligible to serve in 2018.

Those who receive a questionnaire have 10 days to complete and return it to the Jury Pool Office in the envelope provided. Anyone who fails to respond may be penalized.

To be eligible to serve as a juror, you must be at least 18 years old, a citizen of the United States, a resident of Hawaiʻi, and able to read and understand English.
