There are two ways for a Pinal County resident to reply to the Jury Questionnaire. The first is to log onto https://pinaljury.az.gov which is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. All major browsers are supported. The system will prompt the prospective juror to log in, using their unique Juror Log-In number. That number is located just beneath the barcode on the questionnaire.
Associate Jury Commissioner Norma Cruz stated “If you do not have access to the internet, you can fill out the form accurately and mail it back to the Clerk of the Superior Court’s office within 10 days of receipt.” She continued, “If you are requesting an excuse from Jury Service, you must fill out the paper form and mail it or bring it into our office.”
“Going online is quicker. Online submission guarantees that the information is received instantly. It saves the County from paying postage, and can be handled within 24 business hours,” reinforced Chad A. Roche, Clerk of the Superior Court.
If you do not have access to a computer at home, you are able to respond to the questionnaire at any public computer in your local library. There are also five computers for public use at the Law Library, located on the second floor of the Courthouse Building at 971 N. Jason Lopez Circle in Florence.
The concept of “A Jury of One’s Peers” is a cornerstone of the American justice system. The Clerk holds Jury Service to be one of the highest privileges of living under that system. It is the collaboration of the Jury and the Judge who put our guaranteed rights under the Constitution of the United States into practice.
It is a vital duty and privilege to serve on a jury, because jurors perform a unique role in the American system of justice. The juror serves to decide the facts within the criminal and civil justice system, while the judge looks at the rule of law.
The Clerk of the Superior Court, Chad A. Roche, takes his duty as the Pinal County Jury Commissioner very seriously and is proud to discharge that duty. “Our founding fathers knew how important jury service is to our entire justice system,” he said. “Every defendant in a jury trial depends on the honesty and fairness of his or her peers to judge the facts of the case.”
The consequences of the jury’s verdict can carry financial, long-term, and in some cases lifelong ramifications to the person facing trial. Roche continued, “I hope that my fellow citizens and residents of Pinal County will understand that while Jury Service can be an inconvenience to our daily routine, it is one of the highest calls to duty in our Republic.”
Two times each year, the Clerk of the Superior Court mails out questionnaires to 15,000-20,000 residents of Pinal County. The names of prospective jurors are gathered from Arizona Motor Vehicle Division records as well as voter records. If you should have any questions regarding Jury Service or require assistance in filling out the online version, please call (520)866-5311.
