The 3rd constituency of the Marne is a French legislative constituency in the Marne département.


The Marne's 3rd Constituency covers the western edge of the department before sweeping to the south of Reims. Its largest town is Épernay. The constituency as it is today bears no resemblance to the one which existed prior to the 2012 election instead it covers most of the now abolished 6th constituency.

Despite these boundary changes the seat has remained consistently conservative in its voting habits and returned Philippe-Armand Martin at the 2012 election who previously represented Marne's 6th constituency.
