A half-dozen ballot measures affecting Uber and Lyft drivers cleared a hurdle for the November ballot. It’s as complicated as it sounds.

As many as six proposals that would reshape the employment status of Uber and Lyft drivers in Massachusetts cleared a key hurdle toward making the November ballot, state officials said Wednesday, raising the prospect of voters confronting a complicated tangle of issues, unless state lawmakers act.

The ride-share-related petitions are among 10 the secretary of state’s office said gathered the 74,000-plus signatures necessary to officially move to the Legislature, which now has until the end of April to either pass or propose a substitute for each proposed ballot question. If lawmakers fail to act, supporters of the measures must gather more signatures to officially land their questions on the November ballot.
