  • THE JURY POOL: Jurors are randomly selected by the County computer system from a source consisting of the current voter registration list from all the precincts in the county and residents of the county that are holders of a valid Nevada driver's license issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles, Division of Public Safety.

    REPORTING:  Call the District Court Clerk's Office Jury Duty Line at (775) 782-9009 the working day prior to your trial to determine if your appearance is required.  If you are advised that you must appear for jury duty, report to the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center at 1625 8th Street in Minden. Jurors are requested to park in the rear parking lot of the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center. The Security Personnel will direct prospective jurors to the jury assembly room.
