    Sec. 4-3-20. Any municipality which has adopted the provisions of Section 4-3-19 may by referendum elect to require candidates for the office of commissioner to run without designation as provided under Sections 4-3-10 and 4-3-16.
    The question of requiring candidates to run for the office of commissioner without designation rather than for a specific office may be submitted to the electors of the municipality by the council or upon a petition signed by electors of the municipality equal in number to at least 10% of the number of votes cast for candidates for mayor at the last preceding general quadrennial municipal election. Such question shall be certified by the municipal clerk to the proper election authorities who shall submit the proposition at an election in accordance with the general election law. The question shall be in substantially the following form:

a specific office?                       NO
    If a majority of the electors in the municipality voting upon the question vote in the affirmative, candidates for commissioner shall thereafter run for the office of commissioner without designation and not for any specific office in the manner as provided in Sections 4-3-10 and 4-3-16.
