Maps for a political race?

I'm helping someone with their local political campaign and I've been given a voter list with about 2500 records - I'm estimating that it probably has around 1500 unique addresses. I've been asked to map them and produce street by street maps, identifying the address and which side of the street it's on to make it easier to go door to door. Some questions:

What are these maps called? They must have a name and I'm not sure what to Google.
How can I produce these maps? I've looked at BatchGeo
but I'm not sure they can provide those street level maps I'm looking for. Can Microsoft MapPoint
do this? Can I send all the addresses to the Google Maps API? Is there another option I'm not aware of?
If we have to hire someone to generate these maps for us, who do we go to? What kind of firm can do this for us?
This for a non-partisan election so there are no political parties involved, that's why we can't use their expertise.
