Blue or Red? Here Are Some Convenient Graphics on Montana Cities’ Party Affiliations


We all know that Montana is a deep-red state in its rural areas, with the exception of its Indian reservations, which run significantly more purple. There are also the lone blue dots of Bozeman, Helena, Butte, and Missoula. However, this might be an over-simplification.

A new and handy tool from the New York Times provides interesting graphics for exactly how Montana’s cities affiliate politically, which is not an easy chore for a state that has thusfar very unwisely chosen to maintain open primaries.

You can use the tool from the New York Times yourself, but here are some graphics below of some more prominent Montana towns. Please note, these figures include those who faithfully or regularly vote Democrat. Please add 10-20% to the figures for those who might, on occasion, vote Democrat. Also, please note that the figures are for within several miles of city-center, and do not reflect outlying rural areas that may still use the city as their mailing address.


SIDNEY – 9% Democrat

GLENDIVE – 15% Democrat

MILES CITY – 16% Democrat

EKALAKA – 12% Democrat

WOLF POINT – 49% Democrat

GLASGOW – 17% Democrat

JORDAN – 11% Democrat

FORSYTH – 16% Democrat


BILLINGS – 18% Democrat

LEWISTOWN – 19% Democrat

HAVRE – 26% Democrat

HARDIN – 22% Democrat

Ft. BENTON – 34% Democrat


HELENA – 84% Democrat

BOZEMAN – 78% Democrat

BUTTE – 43% Democrat

GREAT FALLS – 38% Democrat

KALISPELL – 9% Democrat

WHITEFISH – 43% Democrat

  1. “Very unwise” to have open primaries? One cool added bonuses for me for moving to Montana was because of open primaries, I do not like being affiliated with a party, even though I won’t vote democrat. I only registered for a very brief period in my former state to vote in the the primary, and that even was something I was loathe to do.
