The 1924 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania took place on November 4, 1924 throughout the continuous 48 states. Voters chose 38 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Pennsylvania overwhelmingly voted for the Republican nominee, President Calvin Coolidge, over the Democratic nominee, former United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom John W. Davis. Coolidge won Pennsylvania by a landslide margin of 46.26%.

Coolidge was credited for the booming economy while the Democratic electorate was divided between the conservative Davis and the liberal third party candidate Robert La Follette who ran as a Progressive. This was the first presidential election in which all American Indians were citizens and thus allowed to vote.
