Under the laws of Nebraska, a master list made up of all registered electors, licensed drivers and state identification holders age 19 is used to select a list of potential jurors.

At such time as may be necessary, or when so ordered by the Court, the Jury Commissioner, in the presence of a District Judge, selects a "key number" for example, six, among the numbers one to ten.

The Jury Commissioner then enters this "key number" into the computer, which then locates and selects from the master list the name of the sixth and each successive tenth name thereafter (e.g. 16, 26, 36, and so on).

For each jury panel, the Court designates the number of jurors to be drawn, and the Jury Commissioner, using the computer's random selection process, draws the required number of jurors.
