South Carolina has an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary. In the primary runoffs, however, voters must vote in the same party whose primary they voted in.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Jeff Duncan (R), who was first elected in 2010.

South Carolina's 3rd Congressional District is located in the western portion of the state and includes Oconee, Pickens, Anderson, Abeeville, Laurens, Greenville, Greenwood, Saluda, Edgefield and McCormick counties.[1]
