Thank Obama - for a larger CA jury pool
Here's another unintended but positive byproduct of the Obama victory in November - you're going to be called for jury duty less frequently. During my own jury duty stint last week the judge told us there has been such a large increase in California voter registration that citizens in most major CA cities will be called every ~18-24 mths instead of annually as the courts work their way through these new eligible jurors. This calculation might assume the new registrants respond to their summons at the same rate as the current pool but overall good news.
