Beginning this week, an estimated 55,000 juror questionnaires were mailed out on Maui.

The surveys were sent to individuals who have a Hawaiʻi state driver’s license or are registered to vote in Hawaiʻi.

The judiciary began sending the questionnaires yesterday to an estimated 235,000 individuals across the state.

The questionnaires are used to help select potential jurors who may be eligible to serve in 2016.
