Voters in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood overwhelmingly voted to re-elect President Barack Obama and largely supported sending Democrat Elizabeth Warren to the US Senate Tuesday.

Obama received 4,663 votes in neighborhood, compared to 955 votes cast for Republican challenger and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, according to preliminary results the Globe compiled from raw tallies provided by Boston election officials.

Fellow Republican US Senator Scott Brown fared better than Romney in the neighborhood, receiving 1,081 votes, but the incumbent Brown still came in significantly below Warren’s 3,526 votes.

About 55 percent of the neighborhood’s 10,680 registered voters headed to the poll for this election and citywide, voter turnout was about 64 percent, according to the preliminary results compiled by the Globe.
