Jury Service

The Jury Office provides jurors to all Hennepin County District Court locations. We issue approximately 30,000 summonses each year to prospective jurors. Jurors are randomly selected by a computer from the "Source List." The Source list is created by merging three other lists: the MN Voter’s Registration list, the MN Driver’s License list, and the MN State ID list. Any duplicates are removed from the merged Source List.

Trial by jury is a basic American right, the very essence of freedom under our U.S. Constitution. By your participation, you will help preserve and perpetuate this fundamental right. We think you will find the experience interesting and educational. Thank you for cooperating.

ALERT: There is currently a nationwide identity theft scam being committed where people are called and asked to give their personal information under the guise of missed jury duty. Minnesota Court staff will never ask prospective jurors for financial information, such as credit card or bank account information. We will also never ask for social security numbers over the phone. DO NOT provide this kind of information to anyone over the phone claiming to represent the District Court. If you get this kind of request, hang up and contact your local law enforcement agency and your local jury office.
