Adding neutral to a 3 gang switch box

I have a three gang switch box where each switch controls two pot lights in the ceiling. These are all on the same circuit and the power is supplied at the light fixtures. The switches each have only two wires white and black, with the white taped to show hot.

i would like to change these switches out for wifi controlled switches that require a neutral.

In terms of getting at the wiring, there is one set where I could easily run new wire (14-3) between the fixture and the switch box to create a neutral in the switch box. My question is can I run all three switches off a single neutral? Or would I need to run wire from the other two sets of pot lights as well?

ive done a fair bit of reading but haven't found this exact scenario.

Any help appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

You can run all three of off that 14-3 neutral since they are on the same circuit.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I suspected as much, but great to confirm.
