    I am looking for a specific component but don't know the terms to search for it.

    what I need is a way to control two circuit switches with one toggle switch either as a relay or a two "channel" toggle switch.

    my project is using a arduino micro for power/control and is not anything above 5v

    Can't visualize what you are trying to do.
    How about a diagram?

    I think you mean an DPST switch, basically two switches side by side, operated by one toggle.

    DPST - double pole single throw. i.e. two switches switching something on and off.

    I want to do a circuit with two switches on it. a momentary pushbutton with a led in it and a toggle switch. what I want to do is when I turn the toggle on it will light the led of the button but not complete the circuit until I push the button
