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