I heard that having a valid driver's license in OK means you are in the pool of eligible jurors, but do they categorize you by the county you live in or some other geographical boundary?

I live in Cleveland county in the gray zone that is SW OKC/Moore/Norman. If I get summoned to be a juror, am I going to get stuck driving to downtown OKC or downtown Norman?

I believe it is by county. But do you have reason to believe you're going to be called for jury duty? I've been called one time in 50 years, seems like unless there's some reason be believe it's imminent, it would be in the worry-about-it-when-it-happens category....?

I’ve been called 3 times. Once for federal. The federal was pretty cool actually. I was sent a packet to fill out, I guess for a background check. I had completely forgotten about until a year later I get another summoning. The pay was much better, the chairs are all padded and rock/swivel. They asked me what I wanted for breakfast the next day and it was good food. Where we met was more like a corporate hotel room.

I was in a felony murder jury pool. Didn’t make the cut when the defense found out I went to college…

If you want to get out of jury duty, just answer every question beginning with “According to the prophecy…”

Jury duty is done by voter registration, not drivers license. If ;you are not
registered to vote, you will not get called for jury duty. So you would be
called for jury duty in your voting district. Not sure how it works on federal
cases though

I know it use to be with voter registration but thought they changed that to the DL some years back because they was always getting the same pool and wanted some fresh meat.
I just know the last time i got called i was escorted out of the courthouse and told not to ever return and havent been called on since.
