Craftsman lawn tractor won't start

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor model number 944.601131 with a 13.5 hp electric start engine. Today at first it wouldn't start, turning the key did absolutely nothing no click, no sound at all, then it started, after mowing the lawn we turned it off and now it won't start again. The key turns and has no resistance at all, could it be stripped?

Sounds like the ignition switch itself has gone bad, Sandra. They aren't too expensive and not too hard to replace.
