Jury Duty Notices
Jury duty is partially based on your Monroe address and your registration to vote in Monroe. Monroe's voter registration records are kept on the Voter Registration Cards that voters have submitted as well as a computer database maintained by the Connecticut Secretary of the State's Office. For this reason, it is easy for the Jury Administration of the Connecticut Superior Court to use this database to find potential jurors based on their town of residence. Keep in mind that the Jury Administration uses three other lists to select jurors:
1) Licensed motor vehicle operators from the Department of Motor Vehicles
2) State Income Tax payers from the Department of Revenue Services
3) Individuals who received unemployment compensation from the Department of Labor.
The four lists are combined and duplicate names are removed and individuals are randomly selected from the list as needed for juries and they are mailed summonses, confirmation forms and confidential juror questionnaires.
Please notify the Monroe Registrars of Voters if you move to another town in Connecticut or if you move out of state. This will eliminate at least one element of the Jury Selection process so that you will not receive Jury Duty Notices in error. Likewise, if you move out of state, you should immediately apply for a motor vehicle operator's license for your new state and also register your vehicle(s) there and send your "old" Connecticut plates back to the CT DMV.
