Comment by LewisC on Elections and Jury Duty: A Good Week to be an American

David,

Thanks for the comments.

does that mean that if I visit USA on business for a year or so and get a US driver’s licence, I will be eligible for jury duty, but if I stay off the motor vehicle driver rolls, I will not?

No. First, each state decides how to pick jurors. Some use election rolls but most have switched to drivers licenses. Why? Because people were not registering to vote so that they wouldn’t get picked. Everybody wants to drive.
