Geneva was for Romney in Tuesday's presidential election, but who we voted for varied drastically from neighborhood to neighborhood.
Gov. Mitt Romney was the decided winner in Geneva Township's 21 precincts, capturing 7,950 votes to President Barack Obama's 5,938 votes. That translates to a 55.94 percent for Romney and 41.78 percent for Obama, of the 14,211 Geneva Township ballots cast in the presidential race.
About 2.3 percent of Geneva Township voters cast ballots for other candidates.
Of the township's 21 precincts, six favored Obama and 15 gave the edge to Romney, according to election results posted on the Kane County Clerk's Office website.
Romney's biggest margin of victory was in Geneva's Precinct 19, located in the Eagle Brook subdivision, a golf-course community where Romney received 70.45 percent and Obama tallied 28.48 of the total 750 ballots cast.
Obama's top performance was in Precinct 9, an "old Geneva" neighborhood just east of the Fox River and north of East State Street, where he carried 54.79 percent of the vote to Romney's 43.79 percent.
Obama won Precinct 1 (downtown "old Geneva"), Precinct 2 (north of downtown) on the West Side, and Precincts 9, 10, 15 and 18 on Geneva's East Side, including the Geneva East subdivision, which was built out in the 1980s and '90s in response to calls for more-affordable housing.

On a lighter note, results of the Geneva Patch poll, Is Geneva for Obama or Is Geneva for Romney?, were were very close to the actual results. The unscientific reader poll showed Romney with 58.4 percent to Obama's 41.6 percent. Of the official ballots cast only for Romney or Obama, Romney took 57.24 percent to Obama's 42.76 percent.
