South Carolina elected one Federalist and five Anti-Federalists to the Third Congress. John Hunter was a Federalist elector for president in 1792, but in 1796 he was elected a Democratic-Republican to the U.S. Senate.
South Carolina used a district system for electing members to Congress. Following the 1790 Census, South Carolina gained a seat in the House of Representatives. After Alexander Gillon died, a special election was held in which Robert G. Harper was elected to replace him.

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.
