We carried out a long-term (2007-2016) polarimetric monitoring in the optical R-band of 37 bright blazars (12 mag < m(R) <18 mag) using the 84-cm telescope at San Pedro Martir Observatory in Mexico. Data were obtained using an optical single beam polarimeter as part of the GASP-WEBT collaboration. Some of the photometric data and few polarization data points were previously published in GASP-WEBT consortium papers. The whole set of data is now being analyzed and new results will be published in the near future.
