Mirroring statewide trends, Natick voters overwhelmingly favored President Barack Obama Tuesday with 62 percent of the town's vote, but were moderately split between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown for US Senate, ultimately favoring Warren with 54 percent of their vote.

The town saw a 77 percent voter turnout for the presidential election on Tuesday, down from 81 percent in 2008, according to the Natick town clerk's office.

Natick voters favored Democratic party candidates, helping to re-elect US Congressman Edward Markey with 70 percent of the town's vote, and state Representative David Linsky with 67 percent. State Senator Karen Spilka, an Ashland Democrat, ran unopposed, as did State Senator Richard Ross, a Wrentham Republican.

Voters overwhelmingly voted to legalize medicinal marijuana with 65 percent for the measure, but were fairly split on the assisted suicide bill with 54 percent supporting it.
