Even if you are legally qualified for jury service, you may be exempt - released from your obligation - if you are:
  • At least 70 years old, and request exemption (you can write your request on your Juror Qualification form),
  • A member of the United States Congress, or
  • A member of the armed forces of the United States or the Maryland militia - and your commanding officer or supervisor writes a letter explaining that you are on active duty and cannot serve on jury duty.
