Voters tab Flyers mascot for a few different public offices @NHLdotcom

Gritty can't quit his day job just yet.

The popular Philadelphia Flyers mascot accrued 14 write-in votes in Camden County, New Jersey, on Election Day earlier this week.

According to write-in voting records, Gritty got two votes apiece for Camden County Sherriff and the seat in the House of Representatives 1st District.

The other 10 votes cast by pranksters were scattered among different Board of Education seats.

While Gritty continues to do great work in the community, it doesn't seem likely that the lovable mascot will be retiring from his current post to pursue public office anytime soon.
