I'm not sure if I can do this or not, but in my bathroom I have lights on a switch above the mirror, and then a seperate vent/fan on a second switch.

Even though these are two seperate products is it possible to wire these together so that only one switch is needed?

If it is possible how would I go about wiring these to a single switch?

Thanks in advance.

If both switches are in the same electrical box, then it would be very easy to eliminate one switch and wire the two loads onto one switch. You would also have to get a cover to cover over the space which used to have the other switch.

I guess I should've specified that it's a duplex switch that looks like a duplex receptacle, so there wouldn't be a space. Is it still okay to wire the duplex switch down to a single switch?

Sure, go ahead and wire both loads on one single pole toggle switch and do away with that duplex switch. Use one wire in a pigtail and wirenut the two load wires to the tail.
