I'm a US citizen living abroad. I'd like to register to vote, however I've heard that this will make me eligible to be chosen for jury duty.
I can't easily appear for jury duty from here, if I register for an absentee ballot will I still be obliged to turn up for jury duty?
A reliable reference would be appreciated (but not necessary). I'm getting some conflicting answers via Google, though the majority seem to say that I can ask to be exempt (not entirely sure how this is to be done).
