Voters in Roxbury overwhelmingly supported President Barack Obama and Democrat Elizabeth Warren during Tuesday’s election.

The neighborhood saw close to 64 percent of registered voters cast ballots, on par with the overall citywide turnout of 64 percent.

It was a landslide for the President in Roxbury’s precincts, taking close to 96 percent of the total votes, according to preliminary results compiled by the Globe.

Republican challenger Mitt Romney received very little support in Roxbury, with his best showing in Ward 8 Precinct 2, taking just under 15 percent of the vote in the precinct and just three percent of overall votes in the inner-city neighborhood.

Senator Elect Elizabeth Warren also saw strong support in Roxbury, taking close to 96 percent of the total vote.

Republican incumbent US Senator Scott Brown saw his best results in Ward 8 Precinct 2, taking close to 21 percent of the precinct’s votes and six percent of the overall vote in the neighborhood.
