Jury Questionnaires Being Mailed To Selected County Residents

Justice scales

Jury questionnaires will be mailed out the first week in January to about 3,000 randomly selected individuals in Churchill County to potentially serve as jurors for trials scheduled at the 10th Judicial District Court and Justice Court of New River Township in 2024. 

The purpose of the questionnaire is to help the Courts determine who is eligible to be summoned for jury trials during the year. Out of the approximate 35,000 to 40,000 names provided by voter registration rolls, a Nevada utility, DMV and DETR which statutorily courts are required to use to create the annual jury pool, 3,000 names will be randomly drawn to form the prospective active jury pool for 2024. Receiving the questionnaire does not mean you have been summoned for a trial. 

Individuals who believe they have a statutory reason for being excused should return their questionnaires right away to help avoid being summoned for a trial. If an individual believes they have another reason outside the statutory excuses they must contact District Court office at (775)423-6088 and speak with staff prior to submitting their questionnaire. 

Prospective jurors are strongly encouraged to complete the questionnaire on-line. Otherwise, questionnaires may be mailed back or dropped off in person to the Jury Commissioner, 73 N. Maine Street, Fallon, NV 89406. Please return the questionnaire within two weeks of receipt. 

Individuals who do not return the questionnaire, are still subject to being summoned for a trial at a later date. 

Should you still have questions prior to submitting the questionnaire, please call the Jury Commissioner’s Office at (775)423-6088 and staff will assist you.
