The right to “a jury of one’s peers” is a concept that anchors the cornerstone of
the American justice system. Do you know how important Jury Service is to everyone?
It is the collaboration of the jury and the Judge who put our guaranteed rights
under the Constitution of the United States into practice. It is a vital duty and
privilege of citizenship to serve on a jury, because jurors perform a unique role
in the American system of justice. The juror serves to decide the facts within the
criminal and civil justice system, while the judge looks at the rule of law.

What is a Prospective Juror Affidavit Questionnaire?
Twice a year, the Office of the Clerk of the Superior Court mails a Jury Questionnaire
to selected residents of Pinal County. In this way, the pool of eligible jurors
remains large and viable. If you should be selected, it is important to respond
quickly and accurately. This form must be returned to the Clerk of the Superior
Court’s office within 10 days of receipt. Failure to respond is punishable by law.
How do I respond to this?
If you should receive our questionnaire, you can do two things. First, you can log
into our convenient internet location
You may sign on at any time, any day of the week. All major browsers are supported;
whether your browser is Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Netscape, it only takes a
few moments to complete. Have your Juror log in number handy (this number is located
just beneath the barcode on the questionnaire). Then it is just a matter of entering
your complete birthday, and answering a few questions. If you prefer to not use
the internet, you will need to fill out the form accurately and mail it back to
the Clerk of the Superior Court’s office within 10 days of receipt. If you are seeking
an excuse from Jury Service at the present time, you must use the option of physically
filling out the form and returning it to the office of the Clerk of the Superior
Your Participation is Very Important.
The Clerk of the Superior Court, Chad A. Roche, takes his duty as the Pinal County
Jury Commissioner very seriously and is proud to discharge that duty. “Our founding
fathers knew how vitally important jury service is to our entire justice system,”
he said. “Every defendant in a jury trial depends on the honesty and fairness of
his or her peers to judge the facts of the case.” The consequences of the jury’s
verdict can carry financial, long-term, and in some cases lifelong ramifications
to the person facing trial. Roche continued, “I hope that my fellow citizens and
residents of Pinal County will understand that while Jury Service can be an inconvenience
to our daily routine, it is one of the highest calls to duty in our Republic.” He
added that jurors have the unparalleled reward of upholding the justice system.
