I had an opinion, personally, I think it was a fair one which will no doubt be hidden.

I voted for neither because (and this is supposed to be constructive criticism!):
RH: You volunteered for this position without being aware of what the role actually involves. This suggests to me that it was done upon a whim. One of the biggest issues with the way AVEN is run is that there is little consistancy ~ a cause of which is the high mod turnover. Somebody who joins without fully thinking about what they are doing, wont be in that position for very long. You have said already that outside issues may cause you to not be able to do your job fully. AVEN deserves a mod who knows what they are letting themselves in for and who isn't going to quit two weeks later.
Haley: You posted your intention to run in both elections. This suggests to me that you don't know the rules surrounding elections. If you are not aware of those rules, how does the community know that you fully comprehend the rules you will be enforcing. There is also the fact that admods must uphold those rules and a higher standard of them that are kept hidden in the backroom - there are guidelines for everything. The desire to run in both elections also suggests to me that your intentions for running may be more to gain influence for yourself rather than to provide a service for the community. Most mods run for their favourite forum or the one that would most suit them - the two you wished to run for were completely different in essence.
Basically, come back later and demonstrate that you understand good reasons for running, the role of a mod and whether you are personally in a position to contribute to the running of the forums and backroom discussion. Not understanding the rules and admod duties could lead to issues such as backroom breaches and conflict something I wish to avoid.
