Juror Qualification Questionnaire
Minnesota citizens who receive a summons for jury service are required by law to complete a Juror Qualification Questionnaire and return it to the court within ten (10) days from receipt of a summons for qualification determination.
Important: If you have already completed and mailed your paper Juror Qualification Questionnaire back to the court, do not complete the online questionnaire.
