  • Jury Selection
  •  
  • The Jury Selection Division randomly contacts thousands of El Paso County residents regarding possible jury duty, from names taken from Department of Motor Vehicles (drivers license and identification cards) and Voter Registration rosters. Returned questionnaires are audited to ascertain if required juror criteria are met and these are the persons who will be summoned to sit on jury panels. Actual juror selection is accomplished by the court and the attorneys at the start of the trial. Payment for those selected to serve is generated by this division.
