How are jurors selected?

The names of all licensed drivers and registered voters in St. Bernard Parish are placed into the jury-management computer system operated by the Clerk of Court. The combined list is updated each year to account for address changes, name changes, additions, and deletions. The computer runs comparisons to eliminate duplicate names and then randomly selects the names of those who will be issued subpoenas to appear, upon request by the Clerk of Court.
