Every August, the Hawai‘i State Judiciary mails juror questionnaires to individuals who have a Hawai‘i state driver’s license or are registered to vote in the state.

This year, beginning Aug, 15, approximately 235,000 juror questionnaires will be mailed to 70,000 residents on the Big Island, 55,000 Maui County residents, 85,000 residents on O‘ahu and 25,000 on Kauai.

The questionnaires are used to help select potential jurors who may be eligible to serve in 2017.

Those who receive a questionnaire have 10 days to complete and return the questionnaire to the Jury Pool Office. 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 Hawai‘i, and able to read and understand English.
