No one has been appointed to the post just yet, but several want the job and have passed the first step to getting it.
After spending nearly three decades in office, Taylor County PVA Julie Shields retired last month.
Shields was last elected in November 2010. Her current term ends in December 2014.
Since Shields retired before her term expired, Gov. Steve Beshear must appoint someone to complete her term.
Those wanting a chance at that appointment had to pass the state’s PVA exam, which was given March 22.
