Juror Qualification Form

Why you received the Form. The Juror Qualification Form is sent to all prospective jurors and is used to help determine whether a person is qualified to be a juror. Jury Offices use the statewide voter registration list and the Motor Vehicle Administration lists of people with driver's licenses or identification cards (and sometimes other lists) to get the names of prospective jurors. These lists are used to make sure that each jury is selected at random from a cross section of the adult Maryland citizens who reside in the county/Baltimore City.

You must return the Form. If you received a Juror Qualification Form, the law requires you to complete it, and return it to the Jury Office, generally within 10 days after you receive it. There are penalties if you lie about an important fact when you complete the Form: you can be fined up to $5,000, sent to jail for up to 30 days, or both. If you do not return the Form as directed, you can be fined up to $1,000, sent to jail for up to 30 days, or both.
