Detailed analysis and context from Georgia Public Broadcasting:

The latest battle over Georgia’s massive new voting law is over sections that allow state officials to temporarily take over county elections boards, with Republicans eyeing Fulton County in particular.

And from the bottom line:

So is it likely that Fulton’s elections board will be suspended?

The short answer is probably no, based on the guardrails set forth in the law, the temperament of the current State Election Board members and the numerous opportunities for the county to make improvements in its process over the next several months — not to mention the elections that will take place in that time.
