State Grand Jury is a statewide program with jurors summoned from every county in New Jersey. If you are selected as a grand juror, you will serve one day a week for 16 to 20 weeks. State Grand Jury is managed by the Mercer County Jury Management Office.
Once you receive your State Grand Jury summons, you MUST complete the qualification questionnaire at least 30 days prior to your reporting date.
If you are requesting to be disqualified, excused, or rescheduled, you can send supporting documentation to email@example.com, or mail it to the Mercer County Jury Management Office at 175 South Broad St., 2nd floor, Trenton, NJ 08608-0068.
