AP II, Sec. 7 Juror qualification forms
(1) A juror qualification form will be mailed with the summons to each juror accompanied by instructions to fill out and return the form by mail or hand delivery to the clerk within five days after its receipt, or to be completed as otherwise directed. The juror qualification form shall be provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts and subject to approval by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
(2) The juror qualification form shall contain the prospective juror's signed declaration that the responses are true to the best of his or her knowledge and his or her acknowledgment that a willful misrepresentation of a material fact may be punished by a fine or by imprisonment, or both. Notarization of the juror qualification form shall not be required.
(3) If the prospective juror is unable to fill out the form, another person may do it for the prospective juror and shall indicate that he or she has done so and the reason therefor.
(4) Any prospective juror who fails to return a properly completed juror qualification form as instructed may be directed by the chief circuit judge to appear forthwith to fill out a juror qualification form. A prospective juror who fails to appear as directed by the judge pursuant to this subsection shall be ordered to appear and show cause for failure to appear as directed. If the prospective juror fails to appear pursuant to the judge's order or fails to show good cause for failure to appear as directed by the judge, the prospective juror may be punished for contempt.
(5) On the first day that prospective jurors appear in response to the summons, any prospective juror may be questioned by the judge or designee, but only with regard to responses to questions contained on the form and grounds for his or her excuse or disqualification. Any information thus acquired shall be noted on the juror qualification form.
(6) No person shall willfully misrepresent a material fact on a juror qualification form.
(7) The contents of juror qualification forms shall be made available to the trial judge and to parties or their attorneys of record unless the chief circuit judge or designee determines in any instance in the interest of justice that the information shall be kept confidential or its use limited in whole or in part
