Beacon Hill voters backed Democrats Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren Tuesday, helping to re-elect Obama as president and send Warren to the US Senate.

Obama received 2,766 votes in the neighborhood, compared to 1,286 votes given to Republican challenger and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, according to preliminary results the Globe compiled from raw tallies provided by Boston election officials.

The share of votes was similar in the US Senate race, but incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown did outperform Romney in the neighborhood. Warren received 2,482 votes and Brown received 1,632 votes, the data show.

About 66 percent of the neighborhood’s 6,231 registered voters went to the polls Thursday. That’s a slightly higher turnout than the citywide turnout rate of about 64 percent, according to preliminary results complied by the Globe.

In the neighboring West End, about 60 percent of the neighborhood’s registered voters cast ballots to give Obama 1,200 votes, or about 68 percent, to Romney’s 551. Warren received 1102, or 62 percent, of the neighborhood’s vote while Brown earned 675.
