Kentucky's 3rd congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Kentucky encompassing most of Louisville Metro, which, since the merger of 2003, is contiguous with Jefferson County. The far southeast reaches of Louisville Metro are part of the 4th Congressional District.

The district is currently represented by Democrat John Yarmuth.

Characteristics[edit]

This district is still heavily Democratic, and is fully contained within Jefferson County, Kentucky.

As of September 2013, there were 518,028 registered voters: 305,121 (58.90%) Democrats, 166,271 (32.10%) Republicans, and 46,636 (9.00%) "Others". All of the "Others" included 35,209 (6.80%) unclassified Others, 10,528 (2.03%) Independents, 678 (0.13%) Libertarians, 177 (0.03%) Greens, 28 (0.0054%) Constitutionalists, 3 (0.0005%) Reforms, and 13 (0.0025%) Socialist Workers.[2][3]

Until January 1, 2006, Kentucky did not track party affiliation for registered voters who were neither Democratic nor Republican.[4] The Kentucky voter registration card does not explicitly list anything other than Democratic Party, Republican Party, or Other, with the "Other" option having a blank line and no instructions on how to register as something else.[5]
