    Mitt Romney and Ann Romney cast their ballots in Belmont on Election Day in 2012.

    Mitt and Ann Romney said goodbye to the town of Belmont when they sold their South Cottage Road condominium for $1.2 million on May 6, according to property records.

    The Romneys bought Unit 65 in the Woodlands at Belmont Hill development about four years ago for $895,000, after selling their Marsh Street home, a placed they’d lived for at least 20 years, for $3.5 million, according to the South Middlesex Registry of Deeds.

    But the former governor and presidential candidate still has a Massachusetts driver’s license, and so does his wife. That’s the form of ID both provided to the California notary public when they signed over the deed to the house, records show.
