Durham County elections officials tallied up more than 400 provisional ballots Friday, and in the end, not much changed from the results published Tuesday night.

The northern Durham community of Rougemont still will not become a town, after a close vote by residents in that area. With 326 of 644 registered voters in the area casting ballots, the vote was split 52 percent against incorporation, with 48 percent against.

With preliminary results in Tuesday night, the decision was made by just 11 votes. Once provisional ballots were counted, that margin shrank to just 10 votes.
