The hidden cost of flawed motor voter: jury duty

February 23, 2011

While it is a serious problem that 144,442 would-be voters who registered via the MVA were not added to the voter rolls ("Nearly 25 percent of MVA voter registrations fail," Feb. 21) it also plays a huge role in explaining why the same voters are called every nine months for jury duty in Baltimore City. If these "dropped" voters could be added, it would greatly increase the jury pool and jurors would be more willing to serve when they know that everyone is participating and not just the same few.
