Are you just replacing this switch for cosmetic reasons?

If you're replacing a switch with two screws with another switch with two screws, then it makes no difference where the two screws are (I hope you're ignoring the green grounding screw, if one, when you count screws). Just make sure you don't replace it with a switch with the same number of screws (not counting the grounding screw).

Your wire colors are strange, however. Are you in the United States? Is this low-voltage wire?
