How about this. We have the first election, but the half with the most
votes get 18-month terms -- just this once! That will set up a six-month
staggering of re-elections for half the seats each time, with standard
1-year terms after that.

If that's too often, there are alternate possibilities, like doing the
same thing at 12 and 18 months, or 9 and 12, etc.
