South Carolina elected four Federalists and two Democratic-Republicans to the Seventh Congress.
Mapping this election is incomplete because of the lack of local returns in many areas.
South Carolina used the district system for electing members to Congress.
In 1802, a special election was held in which Richard Winn was elected to replace Democratic-Republican Thomas Sumter. Richard Winn ran as a Federalist against Thomas Sumter in 1800 but ran as a Democratic-Republican for his successful reelection in 1803.

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. The term Dissenting Republican includes various breakaway factions of the Democratic-Republican party.
