You should simply purchase and install a new switch. It's not safe to bypass the switch as when you do, the entire electrical load is placed on the wall prongs when you plug in or unplug the vacuum. Depending on the brand of vacuum, you can easily order parts and replace the switch at a nominal cost.

Monica, I highly recommend you replace the switch. By passing the safety of a switch on any appliance or tool endangers both yourself and those around you. Just to by pass the switch, you would need to disassemble the appliance. If you are going to do this then get a replacement part and replace it. :) Safety comes first , especially where mechanical and electrical devices are used.
