Elections Canada is considering whether to lay charges after an enterprising Quebecer put an election vote up for auction on eBay.
The vendor's vote went up for sale on Monday and had at least 17 bids by the time Elections Canada discovered it.
"The law forbids selling ballots as you know," said Elections Canada spokesman Gilles Paquin. "You cannot trade a vote, you cannot exchange it with somebody. It's illegal in many fashions."
