In most cases, yes. However if you are less than half a mile from the border, you may be blocked from play and will need to move further away from the border and try again. Your IP address may also be incorrectly placing you in a neighboring state and you will need to correct your IP address.
If you are close to the state border and having geolocation issues, try enabling your WiFi. Try also opening up your device's GPS app and allow it to find your location. Then try geolocating once more.
