    Didn't get picked for a jury though.

    Here they use voter registration rolls and the DMV records. Not sure about other places, but I suspect it's probably the same.

    I did get a federal jury duty summons last year, but the timing was just horrible. My daughter was expecting and we'd already booked our flights, plus right after that my sister was coming and we'd rented a place at the beach. I asked for a postponement til fall, which they gave me. I filled in the questionnaire for the new period when it came, and never got called.

    Here you get excused for 2 yrs if you get called, even if you don't serve on an actual jury. If its local, the term is only 2 wks, and you don't even report all those days, so it's really not that bad.
