Calvin Coolidge
Republican

The 1924 United States presidential election in Montana took place on November 4, 1924. Voters chose 4 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Montana voted for the Republican nominee, President Calvin Coolidge, over the liberal third-party candidate Robert La Follette who ran locally as a "La Follette-Wheeler Independent" and the Democratic nominee, former United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom John W. Davis. Coolidge won Montana by a margin of 4.59 percent.

Coolidge was credited for the booming economy while the Democratic electorate was divided between the conservative Davis and the liberal third-party candidate Robert La Follette who ran as a Progressive and chose Montana Senator Burton K. Wheeler as his running mate. As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Deer Lodge County voted for a Republican Presidential candidate.[1]

With 37.91% of the popular vote, Montana would prove to be La Follette's fourth strongest state in the 1924 election in terms of popular vote percentage after Wisconsin, North Dakota and Minnesota.[2] North Dakota and Montana were the only two states that LaFollette lost by less than five percent, giving him 22 electoral votes in total had he won the two states he was close to winning
