Do you have a test meter? They are as inexpensive as $5 at the nearest Harbor Freight, and that $5 is going to be less than the cost of the ignition switch which may, or may not, be the cause of your problem.
Why not make a small investment in tools instead of throwing parts at the problem?
Also re-reading your original post - there seems to be a misunderstanding or possible misuse of terminology - you say the car would just keep trying to start but never turn over - what do you define as "trying to start" & "turn over"?
To most of us, turn over is the same as crank, you turn the key to the start position and the starter motor cranks the engine which turns over and hopefully fires and starts - when discussing an engine, to turn over is to crank, which is essentially the same as try to start - although the engine doesn't try to start, you try to start the engine.
The car should not crank/turn over/try to start unless the key is turned to the start position.
