The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 6 June Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

Votes cast for "No Preference" are shown as "Uncommitted" in the table above.

Here's how we compute the delegate count:

  • The candidate with the greatest statewide popular vote receives 23 delegates. Bush has received the greatest number of votes.

Tuesday 6 June 2000: All 23 of Montana's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to a presidential contender in today's Montana Presidential Primary.

  • "The 23 National Convention delegates are to be allocated to the presidential contender receiving the greatest number of votes in the primary statewide, notwithstanding that candidate's percentage of the total primary vote statewide. This winning candidate will be said to have received the 'final net primary vote'".
