Montana state hub.jpg


Welcome to Montana on Ballotpedia!


Located in the Western United States, the state of Montana is bordered by North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho and Canada. Nicknamed “the Treasure state” and the “Big Sky Country,” Montana was the 41st state admitted to the Union in 1889. Coupled with the state’s scenic landscapes, today, Montana is a large tourist hub for attractions like Glazier National Park, Yellowstone National Park and the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Although Helena is the state’s capital, the city of Billings is the largest city in Montana. Currently, there are two Democratic members of the U.S. Senate, one Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives, 50 members of the Montana State Senate and 100 members of the Montana House of Representatives. As of September 2013, Montana is one of 13 states that is under divided government and does not have state government trifecta.
