Among the four precincts (Ward 5, Precincts 6, 7, 8 and 9) that make up Back Bay, the area's City Councilor Mike Ross took the most votes with 574 votes out of 1,752 cast, or 32.8 percent. His fellow councilor, John Connolly, got the second most with 29.6 percent (518 votes).
Connolly is going to face top citywide vote-getter state Rep. Marty Walsh in the Nov. 5 election. Walsh has some work to do courting Back Bay voters before then, as he finished seventh there with 58 votes, 3.3 percent of the total ballots.
Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley was third with 13.3 percent (233 votes), followed by former state Rep. Charlotte Golar Richie with 8 percent (140 votes).
Next was Dorchester activist Bill Walczak at 6 percent (104), former School Committee member John Barros at 3.5 percent (61) and then Walsh, followed by City Councilors Felix Arroyo at 1.8 percent (32) and Rob Consalvo at 1.2 percent (21).
City Councilor Charles Yancey, businessman Charles Clemons and Republican David James Wyatt all took fewer than 1 percent of the vote on Beacon Hill.
