Their other option on the ballot was to give the village president permission to pick a candidate who would then be approved by the village board.

Bloomingdale officials put the question to residents in part because interest in the clerk's job has waned and it frequently has become necessary to recruit candidates to run for the post.

The elected clerk will continue to serve as keeper of village documents and recorder of meeting minutes.
