We obtain rotating solutions of regular black holes which are constructed of de Sitter spacetime with the axisymmetric stationary perturbation within the timelike charged thin shell and the Kerr-Newman geometry with sufficiently small rotation outside the shell. To treat the slowly rotating thin shell, we employ the method developed by de la Cruz and Israel. The thin shell is assumed to be composed of a dust in the zero-rotation limit and located inside the inner horizon of the black hole solution. We expand the perturbation in powers of the rotation parameter of the Kerr-Newman metric up to the second order. It is found that with the present treatment, the stress tensor of the thin shell in general has anisotropic pressure, i.e., the thin shell cannot be composed of a dust if the rotational effects are taken into account. However, the thin shell can be composed of a perfect fluid with isotropic pressure if the degrees of freedom appearing in the physically acceptable matching of the two distinct spacetimes are suitably used. We numerically investigate the rotational effects on the spherically symmetric charged regular black hole obtained by Uchikata, Yoshida, and Futamase in detail.
