Could David Ortiz add "Mayor of Boston" to his list of accolades?
Well, not really. The World Series MVP may have received a lot of write-in votes in this week's Boston Mayor's race, but they don't actually count.
The Boston Election Office says that athletes and celebrities often get write-in votes, but unless they are requested they are not counted.
A representative with the Office also said that after the World Series win, they saw even more votes for Red Sox players.
The new Mayor-elect in the City of Boston is Marty Walsh.
