In "Redemption", the legally elected klingon government (supported by most of the population) asked for federation help against, essentially, terrorists.

Kor: "Worf, you've been living among this democratic rabble for too long. I know your bloodline. We both come from noble Houses. Among our people that still counts for something."

Klingons obtain a position on their council either through family bloodlines or by rising to prominence. There are no elections by the Klingon general population.

And speaking of our good old friend Kor, at one point in his career, Kor was the Klingon ambassador to Vulcan. Not a Consul-General running a consulate, but a full ambassador. That means the Klingons had a embassy on Vulcan, therefor the Vulcan government had a separate sovereignty from the Federation government.
