2021 Juror Questionnaires Being Mailed August 3Posted on Jul 29, 2020 in News & Reports, Press Releases
The annual Hawaii State Judiciary juror questionnaires will soon be mailed to individuals who have a Hawaii state driver’s license or are registered to vote in Hawaii.
Beginning August 3, approximately 235,000 juror questionnaires will be mailed to 85,000 residents on Oahu, 55,000 in Maui County, 70,000 on Hawaii Island, and 25,000 on Kauai. They are used to help select potential jurors who may be eligible to serve in 2021. Individuals are selected at random.
Anyone receiving a questionnaire has 10 days to complete and return it to the Jury Pool Office in the envelope provided. Those who fail 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 Hawaii, and able to read and understand English.
The Hawaii State Department of Health is in varying stages of reviewing and approving the circuit courts’ health-and-safety plans to resume jury selection and jury trials. The plan includes touchless temperature scans and CDC-recommended screening questions before entering a courthouse; required face coverings; enforced social distancing measures; and increased cleaning and disinfecting of our facilities.
