Utah Proposition 1, also known as the "Legislative Eligibility Resolution", was on the November 1998 statewide ballot in Utah, where it passed, with 87.0% in favor. It was one of six statewide ballot measures that year in Utah. All six measures, including Proposition 1, were legislative referrals.

The language on the ballot said:

Proposition 1 amends the present eligibility requirements in the Utah Constitution for the offices of state senator and state representative. This proposition requires that the three years during which a person must be a resident of the state be a consecutive period and that it occur immediately prior to the last date provided by statute for filing for the office. Likewise, this proposition requires that the six months during which a person must be a resident of the person's legislative district be a consecutive period and that it also occur immediately prior to the last date provided by statute for filing for the office. This proposition eliminates the reference to a specific date at which other eligibility requirements must be met, but does not otherwise affect those eligibility requirements. This proposition also makes grammatical changes.
