ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia's presidential primaries will be held a month from Tuesday.

The state moved up in the election cycle this year, hoping to have a little more influence on the race.

People in 14 states will be voting on March 1st.

Albany City Commissioner and Darton Political Science Professor Roger Marietta said that there's no way to predict right now who will even still be in the race in one month.      

"Four years ago if you remember the results of Iowa, they weren't settled until like a week or two later, but it probably won't be that much of a difference. But it's a momentum issue and then New Hampshire is another momentum issue and that's the first primary state," said Marietta.

Monday was the last day to register to be eligible to vote in the primary on March 1st.
