Juror Qualification Process To Begin This August

The Arlington Circuit Court, which includes the City of Falls Church, will soon begin its annual juror qualification process. Juror questionnaires will be mailed in early August to randomly selected residents of Arlington County and Falls Church. Questionnaires are used to qualify residents for jury duty which will begin January 1, 2022 and will end December 31, 2022.

Questionnaire recipients are selected from registered voter rolls provided by the State Board of Elections. Jury Commissioners appointed by the Court review the questionnaires to determine eligibility for service according to criteria established by the General Assembly.
