So the UK will be asked to decide soon whether to keep the "first past the post" voting system for electing MPs, or to adopt the AV (alternative voting) model.
What I want to know is why "first past the post" is called "first past the post". What post is the winning candidate first past? [more inside]

Is there a simple way, on the Web, to research how each member in both the House of Representatives and Senate voted on a bill? Specifically, I am looking for how Nancy Bean (Illinois) voted on the recent Health Care Bill. Thanks in advance.
