Maryland elected six Federalists and two Anti-Federalists to the Third Congress.
For the Third Congress, Maryland moved to a district system for electing members to Congress. Maryland gained two seats in the House of Representatives following the 1790 Census.
In December 1794 a special election was held which elected Benjamin Edwards to replace Uriah Forrest, who resigned from office.

In most cases, only candidates who received more than 5 percent of the vote in a district are reported. Other candidates are reported as a group, but only if they in aggregate received more than 5 percent of the vote. In addition, percentages for each district may not add up to 100 percent due to rounding.
