First Judicial District Court

Tribunal del Primer Distrito Judicial

English Español

What is my “civic duty.”

The call to serve on a jury does not frequently come, and such an opportunity may never be repeated during your lifetime. Jury service is an obligation of citizenship. It represents your contribution to our democratic way of life. The sacrifice it compels-and for many of you it is a major sacrifice-enlarges the value of its rendition.

The United States Constitution and the New Mexico Constitution guarantee the right to trial by jury. All Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Los Alamos County residents are obligated by state law to serve as a juror unless they are under the age of 18, not a citizen, found incompetent by a court of law or are no longer a resident of the county in which they were called. This site has been designed to help you answer any questions you may have regarding jury service.

However, this site does not allow you to disqualify, excuse, or request a postponement. Please refer to your summons for additional information and documents required.

Being on a jury is a rewarding experience, and your participation is appreciated.
