On the Republican side, Trump and Kasich are competing for first place, via CBS:

Georgia: On the Republican side Trump has a big lead and is expected to win. Delegates are divided statewide and also by district. If Trump (or someone else) wins with 50% in any district he gets all the delegates in that district. Also, statewide delegates only go to candidates who get at least 20% of the vote, which means either Cruz or Rubio could be on the borderline. On the Democratic side, Hillary goes into the contest with a huge advantage over Sanders. For Dems there are 102 delegates at stake.

Notice that both Cruz and Rubio are above 20%. As mentioned above, that makes them eligible for some of the statewide delegates.

Colorado: The Colorado GOP canceled the party’s preference poll this year. However, on the Democratic side there is some drama as the demographics of the state make it possible for Bernie Sanders to be competitive. If Sanders wins here that could be a sign he is having a good night.
