Jurors - Iowa District Court and U.S. District Court

Historical Notes:

1834-1921: only a man could serve as a juror in Iowa if he qualified to vote (age a least 21; disqualifying examples: mental incompetency, non-citizen, convicted of treason or felony)

In 1834 Iowa was part of the Territory of Michigan, then of the Territory of Wisconsin. On June 12, 1838, Iowa was divided from the Territory of Wisconsin. Restricting jurors to men eligible to vote remained in effect when Iowa became a state in 1846. It was not until 1921 when the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that women had the right and the duty to serve as jurors because the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1920) had granted them the right to vote.
