Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Chad
Bathroom GFCI Electrical Wiring
Chad, GFCI circuit wiring should be done in such a way as to not allow the bathroom vanity light fixture to shut off if the GFCI protection should shut off the circuit. Be sure to obtain a permit and have the necessary inspections.
