The state is moving to align itself with the U.S. calendar.
State of Georgia officials have moved to formalize the primary election date in 2014.
Jan. 17, the Georgia House of Representatives passed legislation that
would align the state's 2014 election calendar with that of the federal
government. That means primary elections would be on May 20.
legislation, House Bill 310, now needs the signature of Gov. Nathan Deal
to become official. It already had passed the state Senate.
Also, the bill would set qualifying dates in early March. Voting in Fulton and DeKalb counties would be at county precincts.
