The master list is a combination of eligible Kootenai County residents ages 18 and over. This list is created primarily through driver's license and voter registration records as well as other such lists as prescribed by Idaho Law.
A juror is not qualified to serve if the individual:
- is less than 18 years of age
- Is not a citizen of the United States
- Is not a resident of Kootenai County
- Is not able to communicate in the English language
- Has been convicted of a felony and is currently on probation or parole
Excuse or Postponement
All citizens of Idaho are required to serve on Jury Duty when called except when the prospective juror:
- Has exceeded 70 years of age and declines to serve
- Is permanently excused for medical reasons by a physician
In order to receive a permanent medical excuse or temporary medical delay, you must submit a signed Doctor's Certificate. You may also receive a temporary medical delay of two years for being a family caregiver by submitting a signed note from a doctor explaining your situation.
If you anticipate legitimate scheduling problems such as unusual work situations or vacation plans you may delay your service for up to six months. If you are a nursing mother please fill out the postponement section on the Questionnaire/Summons.
Questionnaire/Summons are sent to prospective jurors approximately 4 to 6 weeks before your assigned date of service.
The day before your set service date you should call 844-509-1211 after 4:00PM, and listen to the recording to find out if and when you need to come in to serve. If your panel has been cancelled, you do not need to come in and your jury service is considered complete. If your panel is still active, listen for the date and time you need to be present at the Courthouse. This recording will be available the day before your assigned appearance date after 4:00PM.
Length of Service
The average term of service is 5 days. However, most jurors serve only two to four days. Some cases may extend beyond the one-week term. In any case that goes into a second week the judge will give jurors the expected time frame for that trial. The selected juror will serve on that specific case until it has been completed.
Juror information is considered confidential. It will not be released unless by order of the court in which the juror has served on a trial.
