The 1924 United States presidential election in Michigan took place on November 4, 1924, as part of the 1924 United States presidential election. Michigan voters chose fifteen[1] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Michigan supported Republican Party incumbent Calvin Coolidge of Massachusetts in the state's largest landslide in a presidential race as of the 2016 election. Coolidge received over three-quarters of the popular vote, while Democratic nominee John W. Davis of West Virginia garnered only 13.13 percent. Third-party candidate Robert M. La Follette Sr. of the Progressive Party collected ten percent of the vote.[2][3]

With 75.37 percent of the popular vote, Michigan would prove to be Coolidge's second strongest state in the 1924 election in terms of popular vote percentage after Vermont.[4]
