Some people have gotten in trouble with the law for trying to sell their votes on eBay.Now, one Arizona State University student is reconsidering his offer to sell his vote.

Craig Kessler, a junior at ASU, figured since it's his vote, he could sell it on eBay.

By Sunday evening, he had a modest offer of $2.25.

"Basically, whoever pays the highest amount, will tell me who to vote for, and I will go into the polling booth on Tuesday and go vote for that candidate," Kessler said.

A University of Minnesota student was prosecuted recently for making the same offer. Once Kessler found out selling a vote is against the law, he said he was withdrawing his offer.
