Electrical Wiring for a Bathroom Light

Question: I already have lights in my bathroom on a switch leg. Can I add a switch to the existing switch leg to control an added light separately?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Miguel
Bathroom Light Fixture Switch Wiring
Miguel, adding a new switch for an additional light fixture is possible, however the added light fixture will also need to be connected to the same neutral wire of the same circuit which is used for the existing light fixtures and the existing light switch.
