State grand jurors are currently selected virtually using the following process

Step 1 - Jury summonses are mailed to potential state grand jurors. Jurors must complete a qualification questionnaire at www.njcourts.gov/myjuryservice . Those who do not promptly respond online will be sent a questionnaire in the mail.

Step 2 - About one month prior to the service date, only 100 potential jurors will be selected to appear from all those who responded and were qualified to serve. An email will be sent to all qualified jurors informing them whether they have been selected and must appear, or they were not selected and are excused.

Step 3 - The panel of 100 potential jurors will be emailed a link to complete a second questionnaire about their virtual appearance

Step 4 - The Mercer County Jury Management Office will email jurors Zoom instructions prior to the appearance date.

Step 5 - The Mercer County Jury Management Office will email jurors a Zoom invitation link for virtual jury selection the day before the appearance date.
