Why do I need to answer the questions on the questionnaire that comes with the letter and the summons for jury duty?
Georgia law provides that the attorneys for the parties involved in jury trials have the right to ask questions of the prospective jurors in order to assist them in selecting the jury to try the case.

The judges of the Paulding Judicial Circuit believe that the jury selection process, and thus most jurors' stay in court, is greatly shortened by this process. Having each prospective juror answer these questions by use of this questionnaire before they come to court saves time spent by the lawyers asking the same questions in each and every case.

If your completed questionnaire is received prior to the date you are to report for jury duty, you will receive an additional fifty cents to reimburse you for postage and envelope costs, or if you hand delivered the questionnaire back to the Clerk of Superior Court you can be reimbursed for gas.
