The 3rd Congressional District of Nevada is a congressional district occupying the area south of Las Vegas, including Henderson, and most of unincorporated Clark County. The district was initially created after the 2000 census.

It was intended to be a "fair fight" district, and as originally drawn had a relatively equal balance of registered Republicans and registered Democrats. It is currently represented by Republican Joe Heck.
