The Wyoming Supreme Court creates a juror pool list from voter registration provided by the Wyoming Secretary of State’s office and driver’s license registration information provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Annually, the WY Supreme Court provides a randomized list of names from those lists to each court in each county and municipality.
A name is only included on one jury list for each court in any given year, except for federal courts.
Federal courts manage their jury pool independent of state and local courts.
While we strive to notify you 10 days in advance of a trial date, you may receive more or less notice depending on the specific trial circumstances.
Our understanding is that the Wyoming Supreme Court aims to eliminate jurors serving in the current year term from the following year's term, resuming their eligibility in the second year following the term they served. For a variety of reasons, this may not be the case and a juror may appear again in the following year's jury pool. Please contact us with any questions.
Please note when someone has served on a jury during the year's term, they may choose to be excused from serving on any other jury during the remaining portion of the term.
If you have a medical condition which precludes you from serving as a juror, we request you ask your doctor for a short statement indicating your inability to serve. We do not need to know the type of condition or any medical information, only that you are unable to fulfill the requirements of jury service. The doctor's note should be attached to your affidavit requesting excusal (see previous question).
You can request to be excused until the time you return for summer or winter break. Please see prior question on requesting excusal.
