Nah, not with mine. Unless they stick in a PO box, the addresses are correct the large majority of the time (going by returns, 95% or more).
And how about Iowa getting it done the last 2 days, I was really surprised to see that kind of volume but with some adjustments I've made nearly everyone's volume has picked up since Sunday night. Good luck with them!
The thing I will say is that I do not think there is a right or wrong answer as I have customers who work them in every possible way and each has their own level of success.
I think the most important thing to remember as that the customer is the biggest variable and each person may respond better to each different method of contact - phone call, email, door knocking and don't forget texting - many people have started doing this. It's sometimes a good way to let them know who you are if they don't answer a call.
I'd say start with what you're most comfortable with and then work down the list of different methods of contact from there.
