Jury Selection Process
 
At least every two years, a Master Jury List is prepared by a Jury Commission composed of three private citizens from Mitchell County. The Master Jury List is composed of the names of registered voters and those residents with driver's license records in Mitchell County. These are the two sources, as required by law, from which jurors names are drawn. Names are then randomly drawn from this master list for each court session.

To be eligible to serve as a juror in North Carolina, an individual must be a U.S. citizen, NC resident and a resident of the county in which they were summoned. They must not have served as a trial juror in the past two years or served a full term as a grand juror in the past six years. Jurors must be at least 18 years of age although there is no maximum age limit. They must be mentally and physically competent, be able to understand English, and not have been convicted of a felony unless their citizenship rights have been restored.
