Hmm...I've lived in Homer for 5 years and I've been called to Jury Duty 3 times. The first time I asked about it I was nursing an infant and I am a stay at home mom too so my baby had never been cared for by anyone else. The clerk said "You have to find a babysitter." I was shocked. But when I got called in, the judge excused myself and another mother of a young child. I just brought my baby with me.
The second time I had two children, both under three, and one an infant and nursing, I just assumed I couldn't be excused so I brought them with me when I got called in, but all I had to do was fill out a questionnaire and I never got called in.
The third time I called again to ask if I could be excused, and the clerk told me to write a letter stating the reason I couldn't attend at that time and then I could be excused. I was not told about any sort of list that I could be taken off permanently and I never received anything. Does it vary by city/borough? That would be nice to get myself on, since Homer seems to be a place you get called a lot (my dh has also been called 3 times, and is on it right now in fact).
