It is from a parliamentary phrase-- I second the motion. In legislatures, clubs and organiztions, it is often necessary for a second member to endorse a proposal before it can be considered by the whole body present.

The origin is interesting:

second (v.) "to further, to support," 1586, "to support or represent in a duel, fight, etc.," from M.Fr. seconder, from L. secundare "to assist, make favorable," from secundus "assisting, favorable, following, second" (see second (adj.)). The noun in this sense is first recorded 1590. The verb in the parliamentary sense is first recorded 1597.
