The way I look for a candidates position is
- Use the voter guides listed below
- Link of Google to find the candidates website-search for issue papers
- If you cannot find your answer there then look for contact information, it's best to call at this late date.
In PA there are County and Local Elections
Philadelphia has the Mayor and City Council Elections
You can get a rough idea about local candidates in the Philadelphia Inquirer Voter Guide which usually includes an answer to a generic question presented to the candidates (usually taxes or open space).
Committee of Seventy offers a very comprehensive voter guide for the city of Philadelphia.
The committee is also looking for bicycling volunteers on election day
