I am in the miliary, on active duty, do I have to serve jury duty?
The 1st step is to determine whether you are qualified to serve - if you have been a resident of Michigan for 12 months and a resident of Antrim, Grand Traverse or Leelanau County for 6 months and you meet all other eligibility requirements, you may be selected by the jury commissioners to serve jury duty.

Please note that United States Army, Air Force or Navy personnel or their spouses are not considered residents of Michigan by reason of being stationed here. You must have declared Michigan as your state of residency in the "SC" block on your Military Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) for at least 1 year to be eligible to serve jury duty.
