Moving- citizenship

Hello, I’m a permanent resident who moved to
the states in 2005. I should be able to take a
citizenship test by end of this year in oct/nov.
Now, I’ve been a NC resident for 11 years- but I
might be moving to FL in 2-3 months. Would
that affect my paper when I put the application
in for Citizenship?

No, it should not affect your ability to apply for naturalization if you move your residence from one state to another.  You will need to update USCIS of any address changes if it happens after you submit the application so that your case is referred to the appropriate local office for interview.
