jury selection system flawed

How does our Nevada County civil and criminal jury selection system work? Several of my friends receive jury summonses on a regular basis – every few months. This has put a strain on some of them. Since moving here 10 years ago, being a registered voter and a taxpayer, I’ve never received a jury summons. If only a few people are sent summonses every few months, it stands to reason some may tend to feel overburdened.

Seems to me the jury selection system should be reviewed.
