Thanks to the three candidates: it was nice to have election with three good profiles. It was also nice to learn a little bit more about some profiles by reading their answers to "mod-related" questions.
That being said, I am not convinced that the high correlation between rep and probability to be elected is a good sign for the community, because the mods actions are not so much rewarded compared with answering questions. And it doesn't necessarily require the same skills. Last year I was candidate, but with higher rep this year I could "try" some mod actions, and I found it very difficult (I skip one out of five reviews, only duplicates and spams are easy IMHO). Maybe the badges could be a better indicator, but again stating the "mod value" prior to the election doesn't tell everything.
Anyway, congrats to the new mods, they deserve it independently from their rep.
