What is "roll call?"

Roll call is held each morning to record the presence of the jurors on the general jury panel. At the end of each day, you will be informed as to the time and place to report on the following day, or call the juror information line.

The first day’s roll call is a bit more involved than on subsequent days. You will be asked to state your name, occupation, and if married, the occupation of your spouse.
