You can sue the U.S. government much as you'd sue any other individual or government agency. Simply hire a lawyer to fill out the paperwork for you and proceed from there.

Yes,Question: Are Members of Congress exempt from the laws they pass?Answer: No, with one exception.Members of Congress are subject to the same laws as all Americans, with one exception. Article 1, Section 6 of the Constitution, which states:“They [Congress] shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.”Article 1, Section 6 of the Constitution was created to protect the legislative branch from abuses of influence or authority by the executive branch. The exception does not apply to Members of Congress when Congress is not in session, and it does not provide Members immunity from prosecution for commission of a crime. In all other cases, Members of Congress are subject to all federal, state, and local laws.

Yes, the United States government can sue individual states, and states can sue the federal government.

Yes, the name is is just a name, like "Sue Smith", for example. But the law related 'sue' is often written "to sue" and includes a lot of paperwork and people accusing the other of something; this "sue" is not a name. Example Sentence Sue M. said she was going to sue Sue Z. because Sue Z. ran into Sue M.'s car. When one private party, instead of the legal system, brings "a charge" in court against another private party, it is typically a lawsuit in which one party sues another party. The government does not sue; the government can usually only charge.

Start by hiring an attorney, and figure out who you want to sue. There is no "election office" of the US. Elections are handled by the Registrars of the various states. As far as whether you have grounds to sue- that is another matter.
