Renewal of regular concealed carry permit by deployed military service member.
If a South Dakota resident holds a regular concealed carry permit issued in accordance with § 23-7-7
and is a member of a state National Guard unit, the Armed Forces of the United States, or the Armed
Forces Reserves of the United States and the holder's permit expires during an active duty military
assignment or deployment outside of the holder's state of residence, the holder may request a renewal
form application from the Office of the Secretary of State. The Office of the Secretary of State shall
prescribe the contents of the application form and any accompanying materials. The application must
be accompanied by documentation of the deployment, including dates and location of the
deployment if available for disclosure; an affidavit signed by the holder's commanding officer or unit
commander attesting to the identity of the holder and the fact the holder is unable to return to the
state to renew; and a copy of a current, valid, government-issued identification card with a
photograph of the holder. The Office of the Secretary of State shall specify the contents of the
affidavit. The holder shall mail the application, containing original signatures in ink, to the sheriff
in the holder's county of residence. The sheriff will conduct the background investigation, including
a criminal history check of available online records pursuant to § 23-7-7, within five days of receipt
of the military application renewal form. The original signature of the applicant on the renewal form
shall serve as the applicant's signature for the temporary permit.
