How are jurors selected for jury service?

Every year the Jury Commission office receives a list of names that have been randomly selected from drivers license, voter s registration, and Illinois ID card. This list is obtained from the AOIC (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts) in Springfield, Illinois. These names are then combined into one master list and names are randomly selected to receive a juror questionnaire. When the questionnaire is returned, the jury commissioners then qualify potential jurors. Once qualified the jurors are randomly selected to receive a jury summons.
