How do I get excused from jury duty?

You do not need to do anything at this time.  If you are selected to appear for a particular trial, you will receive a Summons in the mail about 5 - 6 weeks before the trial.  It will contain instructions on how to request an excusal.  Please note: 5 - 6 weeks should be ample time to make arrangements for things like daycare, changing work schedules, and transportation.
