See also State legislatures with term limits and Impact of term limits on state representative elections in 2012

The Montana House of Representatives has been a term-limited state house since Montana voters approved CI-64 in 1992. C-64 created Section 8 of Article IV of the Montana Constitution, which says that Montana State Representatives cannot serve 8 or more years in any 16-year period.

There are 100 Montana State Representatives. 16 of them, or 16%, were termed out in 2012. Of them, 6 were Democratic and 10 were Republican.

In addition to the 16 Montana state representatives who left office because of term limits, 8 Montana state senators were also termed-out.

Montana state representatives whose seats were up for election in 2012 but who were unable to run because of the state's term limits were:
