Abstract: A long-term optical polarimetric monitoring of a sample of 37 blazars was carried out from 2007 to 2016. The observations were done using the R-band filter and the POLIMA instrument attached to the 84 cm telescope at the San Pedro Martir Observatory. The monitoring of the sources was done within the framework of the GASP-WEBT collaboration. Data collected during the project have been used to support several multiwavelength studies on blazar variability and also provided new results on optical polarization properties of some particular sources like 1ES1959+650 and W Comae. The whole database is now currently being analyzed and more results will be presented in the near future.
