    Why "a Senator's votes "? Why not "a Senators's Votes"?

    Why "a Senator's votes "? Why not "a Senators's Votes"?

    1)The non-partisan National Journal rates a Senator's votes by what percentage of the Senate voted more liberally than he or she, and what percentage more conservatively, in three policy areas: economic, social, and foreign. For 20052006 (as reported in the 2008 Almanac of American Politics), McCain's average ratings were as follows: economic policy: 59 percent conservative and 41 percent liberal; social policy: 54 percent conservative / 38 percent liberal;, and foreign policy: 56 percent conservative / 43 percent liberal.[287]

    What makes you think that it should be like that? "a senator's votes" = "the votes cast by a senator".
