New Jersey's 3rd congressional district is represented by Democrat Andy Kim, who has served in Congress since 2019. The district combines nearly all of Burlington County with portions of the shore in Ocean County. Politically, it is closely divided, as Burlington leans Democratic and Ocean leans Republican.[] As of 2021, it is one of seven districts that voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election while being held by a Democrat.
