I only ever once got a jury duty letter and it was for someone else who had once lived at that address.

I'm thinking of taking a low-key approach and trying to appear slow and hard of hearing. Ask for everything to be repeated at least twice and stare off into space when I'm supposed to speak and the like.
Of course, the risk is that'll I'll be too subtle and not clearly be a worse enough option than the other mouth-breathers that are sure to be in my group.


Any suggestions or tips that have worked for you personally?
The easiest way to avoid jury duty is to be a naturally deplorable person and just let that fact shine during selection.

Curious - there's no connection in Canada between voter's lists and court lists (it's illegal to use the voter's list for anything but elections).

I understand they actually use municipal taxpayer's lists and census records to call prospective jurors.

They don't use voter registries for jury duty call-ups. That's a myth.

I have no idea where I heard that but I thought it was true for the longest time. My parents have never been called for it and neither have I.

Default jury trial

here is the charleston south carolina area they do not pay for you to be on a jury and I simply tell them sorry, you can take the jury notification and stick it up your arse cause I do not work for free and then I point out, go to the unemployment office or people who are on disability and pull from them. some of us work for a living and I have no time to convict somebody of whatever they are doing wrong.

YES!!! There are so many people who are unemployed, homeless, etc. why not give them the $8/day and leave those who are working alone.

you do not get paid to be on a jury and in otherwords, you are working for free and I told them forget you. I aint bothering and I further tell them, if you pick me I would scream rant and rave and bring crazy to the next level.

Because people generally don't want their fate decided by a panel of dirty old men with track marks on their eyeballs.

Compared to what some races can expect from the justice system in this country that might actually be an improvement...

I got my doctor to write me a note. I told her (honestly) that I was worried they would not have seating that would accommodate my size comfortably for eight hours. I told her at work that I have a chair that was custom-made for me, and that's the only reason I can make it through 8 hours there. If I'm in a too-small chair, I have to sit on the edge of the seat, and all my weight is put on my knees - bad news for someone with knee issues.

If you're larger and seating could be an issue, it may be something worth talking over with your doctor.
