Utah Proposition 3 appeared on the November 1996 statewide ballot in Utah, where it passed. It was one of six statewide ballot measures that year in Utah, all of which passed. All six measures, including Proposition 3, were legislative referrals.

The ballot summary said:

Amends the Utah Constitution to modify the provisions on jury size for certain types of court cases so that: (a) juries in capital cases must consist of twelve persons, (b) juries in all other felony cases must consist of at least, and (c) juries in other cases must have their sizes established by the Legislature, but in no event can a jury be less than four.
